Minority Korner

Nnekay and James are SO excited to be apart of the Maximum Fun Network, the support has been amazing! James talks about the amazing Broadway Play, Color Purple... which is NOT featuring Jennifer Hudson anymore. Which is too bad because James has another one of his famous impressions! James breaks DOWN the play and how everyone should check it out.

Nnekay takes us to the Protect Yourself/Protect Other People Korner! First, she breaks down what to do when an active shooter is present, with information from Homeland Security. The Protect Other People part covers how straight Allies can support the LGBT community.

James takes us through an Orlando News Round Up Korner. He tells us stories of survivals, victims, the police officers who came to help, and some of the potential legislation. He also explains how even he has a connection to some of the victims. How this tragedy hits so terribly close to home. Also, James breaks down how the rest of the world has shown solidarity... including a very surprising celebrity.

We got another Quizlet Korner! Will James stump Nnekay?!?!?!

So enjoy! Share, and spread the word!

Maria Bamford on Finding the Comedy in Mental Illness

Maria Bamford is a stand-up whose comedy is equal parts confessional and surreal. Using events from her own life, including her struggles with mental illness, she finds comedy in the painful and absurd, infusing both with an infectious joy that has endeared her to fans around the world.

You might know Maria from her roles on shows like Arrested Development, Comedy Bang Bang, Maron and Louie. She found wider national fame during the 2009-2010 holiday shopping season when she appeared as a super-enthusiastic shopper in a series of Target commercials.

Maria sat down with Jesse to talk about her own experiences as a patient of various Los Angeles mental health facilities, finding love and how wanting to work less proved to be a good career move.

Her new show, Lady Dynamite will be available for streaming on Netflix from May 20th. You can find out more about her upcoming tour dates at MariaBamford.com.

The Curb Your Enthusiasm star joined Jesse to talk about transitioning from a career with the NSA to stand-up comedy, coming out “accidentally” during a rally against California’s Proposition 8 and why she believes that Bob Hope may have been a super spy.

Jesse was especially excited to talk with Wanda about one of his favorite characters in film, Biggie Shorty from the Louis C.K. directed, Chris Rock produced blaxploitation parody, Pootie Tang (or as we had to refer to it on NPR, “shmooty shmang”).
